Our Op Shops
In early 2017 we opened two op-shops where everything in store is capped at $5 with all proceeds going towards Pay A Sack Forward. Thanks to the amazing support of the community at large, we’ve expanded our network to three op-shops, all contributing to those experiencing homelessness, bringing awareness and directly supporting those in desperate need with our ‘Survival Sacks’ or network of amazing partnerships.
Brisbane – Studio Thrifty 4
270 Abbortsford Road, Bowen Hills
Studio Thrifty 4 is a fabulous little piece of heaven that has some of the best pieces in the Brisbane Op-Shop Scene.
Carefully curated to ensure there’s something for everyone, ST4 is the perfect place to call in, have a browse through the racks and slip into the groovy music that makes you feel all too at home.
With all proceeds going towards delivering our homeless assistance program ‘Pay a Sack Forward’, you can feel proud about making a tangible impact within your community when you visit.
Melbourne – Thryft

Thryft operates as the home of PASF in melbourne. Running as an op-shop, coffee shop and community space to pack and distribute sacks from.
Based on a social enterprise model, all proceeds from coffee and clothing sales go directly into Pay A Sack Forward. As with Studio Thrifty 4 all clothing is $5, which aligns directly with our $5 sack model.

Opened in Mid 2018, Thryft GC is the first step in expanding Pay A Sack Forwards reach further South from Brisbane. Running on the same $5 model as both Thryft and Studio Thrifty 4, Thryft GC has become the Gold Coast hub for PASF.
